Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) achieved a landslide win in Delhi on Tuesday that led to a near total whitewash of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from the city’s electoral map.

A day after Arvind Kejriwal's AAP registered a thumping victory in the Delhi assembly elections, speculation is rife over how his new cabinet would look like. Kejriwal, whose party won 67 of the 70 seats in the Delhi House, has so far kept his cards close to the chest. There's no doubt that Kejriwal will assume the CM's responsibility for the second time. His close aide Manish Sisodia, Greater Kailash MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj and former Apple executive Adarsh Shashtri – a first-time MLA from Dwarka – may get ministerial berths.
Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal sought full statehood for Delhi in meetings with two high-profile central ministers on Wednesday as he hit the ground running a day after the AAP swept to power in the Capital.
